Brianna Kramer

Writing Intern

Location icon United States of America

My name is Brianna. I'm 24 years young. I currently teach English at North Charleston High School, where we serve an underprivileged population of students. While I have found teaching to be both challenging and rewarding, I do plan to explore writing as a profession after this school year. I am currently working a writing internship with Campussports.net, which allows me to gain both exposure and experience as I work closely with an editor who publishes my work. I plan to continue to immerse myself into the world of Journalism, so that I can one day obtain my dream job of writing for a newspaper or magazine in a large city.
